On this little hill, made of pebbles, I sewed a little pebble. It is about one cm.
First I cut a piece of plastic, threaded it and glued it at the bottom. Then I only had to fasten the thread.
Over to another area of the desert. Here are three little plastic beads trapped under the sand. I like them and the wrinkles as they are, so not much manipulating here.
I only tidied the wrinkles up, so there will not be too much excess fabric at the edge of the desert.
I added lots of french knots, one or two wraps. This lovely thread is Kreinik fine braid #12.
The colors vary from sand to silver gray.
Some straight green stitches were added.
Here I have added little shrubs. What stitch could that be?
Just ordinary french knots, about four loose wraps. The thread is Appleton crewel wool, I mixed two colors, terracotta and ochre.
Here I loosened up the french knots with my needle. Amazing the difference between the loose french knot shrubs and the tight french knots between the trapped beads.
